I love, love, love watching Survivor, even if SABC 3 is a season or so behind...... and the best move.... the blind side. Sad thing is in life the devil is a master artist at the blind side move on us. So how do we get ahead in the game?
Well here's a couple of tools I can think of that we need in our back pack go help us along our way:
Binoculars: The word of God gives us our long term view and helps us maintain our vision. I mean we do finish up in heaven don't we?
Head lamp: The Holy Spirit will show us things to come, lighting up our medium term path.
Torch: God's word not only gives us a long term view, but helps us navigate in the dark, with our daily reading of the word to encourage us and keep us going.
Periscope: The testimony of those that have gone before us, can give us the insight we need when we need to see around a bend.
Rear view mirror: The Spirit of the Lord is a discerner of the thoughts and attitudes of the heart, helping us to judge incidents in our lives and find their true meaning.
Rope: When we are stuck in the storm, the rope that binds us to our fellow believers in Christ will help us stay on the path.
Anchor: If at sea, our anchor of faith helps ground us when our faith in God is tested.
Sail: Hope flies as our flag and sail, catching the thermals of God's spirit powering us on our way to God.
Compass: Our compass not only guides us on our way but at it's heart is a cross which is the rock of our salvation.
So you see, we have a whole lot of tools to guide us on our way! So safe traveling along in the game of life :-)
